Habit Updates and November’s Challenge

Be_on_time

Want a peak into our home about thirty minutes before we need to get somewhere? 9:30 “Kids, we need to leave soon. Time to clean up the schoolroom,” I say, and then hurry through the house, making sure the floors are tidied and the laundry is put away. 9:40 After stepping on at least twenty […]

One Habit a Month: Posture

Good_posture

(I’m took a break from adding to my herbal collection in June since I’d prefer moving as few little glass bottles as possible! I plan to be back with my monthly herbal additions next month.) June was busy. July will probably be even busier. I struggled to work on my reading habit last month so plan […]

Six Months of Habits: Check-Up

June is over. 2012 is half over. Can you believe it? Though at times the waiting and waiting for answers about our next step seemed to drag on forever, in all other ways this year has flown by! The monthly habit check-ups have been a great incentive for me. Since the habits are ones that […]

One Habit a Month: Establish a Reading Routine

Establish_reading_routine

“Good habits, once established, are just as hard to break as are bad habits.”  – Robert Puller I am good at making detailed schedules. I am not so good at following them. However, basic routines help me to fit the important things, like reading to my children, into the fabric of my day. Each month […]

May’s Habit: How Did You Do?

Outside_fun

Each month this year I have worked to weave a new habit into the fabric of my days. After two months of working on the difficult, never-will-be-mastered habit of taming the technology monster, May’s habit was fun: get outside with the children for at least 15 minutes daily. This is easy in the mild parts […]

One Habit a Month: Spend Time Outside Daily

As you know, each month this year I’m focusing on one new habit that I want to become part of the fabric of my life. I’d love to have you join me! May is here and it’s time to tackle a new habit. After tackling a difficult habit the past two months (limiting techy distractions), May’s habit […]

April’s Habit: How Did You Do?

Computer_time_management

Instead of Grand Resolutions for 2012, this year I’ve been working on implementing new habits that will help me become a more disciplined woman. For the past two months, I’ve been working on establishing and following technological guidelines. The more I’ve sought to wisely use my time online, the more I’ve realized that time management […]

One Habit a Month: [Continue to] Establish Technological Guidelines

Online_Checklist

Following technological guidelines was the habit I sought to cultivate in March. As I shared yesterday, I’ve still got a lot of work to do. Blogging takes time. When I first started to blog, I thought writing a post and hitting “publish” was about all there was to it. (Experienced bloggers, feel free to laugh […]

March’s Habit: How Did You Do?

Technological Distractions

Once again, this is late. I’d like to think that the fact I hardly checked my email let alone blogged this weekend meant I was strictly following technological guidelines. It really just means we had a fun and very busy weekend!   Rather than focus on grand resolutions in 2012, my goal has been to work […]

One Habit a Month: Technological Guidelines

12_Habits_Technilogical_Self_Control

I was so busy with the No More Student Loans Giveaways last week that I didn’t get my new habit for March posted. [There are over a dozen prizes from some of my very favorite authors and businesses. If you haven’t yet, click here to enter the giveaways. Entry closes tonight!] Rather than make resolutions for 2012, each […]
